RACKK & RUIN X THREAD MAGAZINE
Molly Conant may be the daughter of Steve Conant, founder and owner of Conant Metal & Light on Pine Street. And she may be the successful one-woman force behind Rackk & Ruin, a jewelry collection made from vintage metals and other materials. But she did not break into the metalworking world in the linear, familial fashion that one might expect.
“I started with that and I wore a version of it to work, and enough of my coworkers and customers were excited about it that I was like ‘oh, you would want me to make you one of these for money?’” she says. “When I discovered how much I loved working with my hands and making jewelry, it just clicked. It’s a pretty easy world to break into and learn as you go.”
